[Matt] So this exercise is the standing calf raise. We do this on flat ground, very easy to perform at home, good exercise for the calf muscles.

We’re going to start by having a narrow base, so keep our feet together.

Place one hand on my shoulder for balance, other hand on your hip, and we're going to do eight repetitions. Up on the toes, as high as you can.

One. Good. So the idea is to engage those calf muscles. Up on the toes…

…get those heels up off the ground as high as you can. Maintaining good posture, focusing on

keeping your balance.

Excellent job.

[Man] That’s better, yeah?

[Matt] Up. Up. And down. Good.
